Hi, i have just turned 30! Nooooooooo
I have no children yet and i'm afraid i might be turning into one of the women who thinks time is running out so i'd better have a child as soon as i can.
I have heard that its more complicated the older you get and you should try and have a baby before your 35. Is this right?
Also, when we are born, we have are eggs stored in our overies then, ready to start being released when we hit puberty. Is this true and do they deteriorate the older we get? Also is there always enough eggs to last until menopause, or is that when menopause happens, when you run out of eggs. Would going on contraception like the depro injection (or whatever its called) that stops the release of a egg each month, be a good thing to go on, to keep them fresh for when i need them, so to speak. Hope i make sence and maybe i should already know this, but i've never looked up anything like this, as i've only starting thinking about kids for the last year and now even more so.
